Unrivalled expertise

The work drew on our unrivalled expertise in food labelling and helps to underline the importance of ensuring that labels are prepared right first time. Our Label Review Service is designed to do just this for companies and thereby help them prevent costly errors that require unnecessary label changes; in the most serious cases such errors can trigger product recalls or even lead to prosecutions.
